GREAT RESULTS OVERNIGHT
from Peoria, AZ
About Me Minimalist
Comments about RESIST Daily Smoothing Treatment 5% AHA - 1.7 oz:
Blown away already!! I used this last night as a spot treatment on my post cystic acne discoloration which had left my skin with a rough surface. PC staff (by chat) has been educating me on the benefits of BHA's & AHA's so I bought the New Calm BHA 1% (I have not received in the mail yet) then they were so kind to send me samples of the AHA 5% because I was afraid since I have extremely sensitive skin & also because of the reviews here where people have had experienced irritation. So last night I figured I'll spot treat it on vs applying all over my face just in case it causes me any irritation. I woke up this morning & that spot was much softer & I ended up spot treating it again & when about my morning skincare routine. I don't know if it will give me irritation at all in the next few week or not but so far I am blown away. Texture-wise, it is a thicker liquid and the finish is tacky (not greasy at all) & my serum layered well on top of it. I'm not a huge fan of the finish but because it's proven to be effective so far, then I'm willing to overlook that.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Genius in a can
I would take a bullet for this stuff. It leaves my skin so soft and clear, not just in the longterm, but right away. All the Paula's Choice AHA products have had a magical effect on my cheekbone/jawline acne, but this is the best. It brightens, it evens, it clears, it disappears immediately into my skin, it doesn't irritate at all despite how powerful it appears to be, and it doesn't create any pilling when I put tinted moisturizer over it. Lifesaver.

Love it - wish it had higher AHA concentration
I absolutely love this AHA lotion. It's soaks in immediately, leaving my skin feeling smooth, silky, and hydrated.I use it at night and in the morning under my moisturizer and makeup - it doesn't cause any problem with the makeup.I just wish Paula would make it with enough AHA in it to be truly effective (even Paula says you need more than 5% AHA for a lotion to be effective!).

A good starter AHA but not my favorite.

About Me Beauty Conscious
I used this product to replace the Olay Regenerist Night Serum AHA that was discontinued. I did notice a gradual improvement in my skin tone after months of using this treatment, but when it ran out I decided to purchase the 8% AHA Gel instead and I LOVE the gel.My biggest frustration with this treatment is that it's a completely opaque bottle that didpenses product via a vacuum pump. You can't in any way see how much product is left in the bottle, and you can't shake the bottle to get a feel for how full it is. This frustrated me because I had no idea when I was going to run out and I did, in fact, completely run out by surprise one day. I would prefer a different bottle so I could see how much I had left!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Beautiful bright skin!
from New York, NY
I have dry, sensitive skin and use this daily before my night time moisturizer to help brighten my skin and exfoliant off the dry parts. It works beautifully and doesn't make my skin red or irritated at all. BHA is too drying on my face and the AHA works so well, I'm very happy with this. And it smells nice! This has replaced some pricier brightening serums that I've tried!

I finished it....
This was not for me. It was a little too strong for my sensitive skin. It did do a little but it dried me out too much to use regularly. I did finish the bottle though. Very very slowly. I've been having really great luck with the 2% BHA gel I purchased after this though.
About Me Beauty Expert
I'm absolutely in love with this leave on exfoliant - I tried it out overnight and I swear my fine lines looked plumped and my skin was more radiant and even in the morning, plus no irritation, the product is weightless and feels like wearing nothing. I'm looking forward to trying out the 8% once I've used all of this sample (with sensitive skin, I wanted to try out a lower concentration first)

Love your products, sadly this one has done nothing for my skin. I'm wondering if it's a bad batch. My skin is very rough, but using this product has not changed that.

I absolutely love the product! I have been using Paula's Choice for over a year, started with sample sizes. I have yet to find anything in the line that I haven't loved!
By Barbara D.
It is the first time that I am disappointed inPaula's Choice product. All my beauty productscome from Paula's and I ( and my skin ) love all of them. This one, however, is an exception.I apply this 5% AHA treatment only once a day( at night ) and I wake up in the morning withred and blotchy face. I decided to discontinueusing this product altogether. Nevertheless, I am Paula's and her beauty products fan thereforeI will keep buying from her. In fact, I am placing an order for some of them today.
